Cervix?

Hello,

I've been spending hours reading postings and have a silly question that I can't seem to find an answer to.

What purpose is the Cervix? I know I can ask my doctor this week but I feel so uninformed about my body now that I have to have something done! I never even would have thought to ask the doctor about this had I not seen postings out here.

Thank you!

Cervix?

The cervix is the "neck" of the uterus and it's most important function is to keep a pregnancy in the uterus. The cervix is what dilates during labor to allow the baby out of the uterus. In the nonpregnant state, it contributes to lubrication of the vagina and of course is the outlet for bleeding in a period. It really is not an organ by itself but is attached firmly to the uterus, almost like an extension of the uterus itself. I think it my have a few other functions as well, but these are most important. Hope this clears up the question for you. No questions are silly, we want our sisters to be informed. Keep asking, someone here has the answer!

cervix

Hi there Donna

Cervix—The cervix is the neck, or lowermost part, of the uterus. Its opening, the cervical os, allows passage of menstrual blood and semen. It is too small to permit tampons or other objects to enter the uterus.

This is a medical page definition. I liked Gee's answer to


Take care
Michele
